Acer Liquid Jade Z Smartphone Review

 

Liquid Jade. Acer's Liquid Jade Z is a very lightweight dual-SIM smartphone with many curves. This report reveals whether the device is convincing overall.

Light and slim casing, Relatively stiff, Dual-SIM support, Expandable storage, Decent camera equipment, High performance, Acceptable sound

Dark screen with greenish tint, Middling voice quality, Either dual-SIM or micro-SD, Slow GPS, Image sharpness not always perfect, High consumption rates

The fast SoC is certainly an asset that Acer's Liquid Jade Z can boast with. It allows smooth gaming and lag-free navigation in the operating system. The cameras in Acer's smartphone also have some advantages over the comparison devices, and can even...

Acer Liquid Jade Z review

 

Acer's Liquid Jade Z oscillates between being wieldy and cheap.

The Liquid Jade Z is an odd device, in many ways. It doesn’t have a distinct look, yet it feels so light to hold that it oscillates between being wieldy and cheap. Plastic bodies that are obvious tend to evoke that feeling more now than ever, in my...

Acer Liquid Jade Z review

 

Acer's new phone is thinner than you'd expect

Great screen ; Good front-facing camera ; Comfortable to use one-handed

Cheap, flimsy construction ; Sub-par speakers ; Disappointing rear camera

Acer is known to many as the Taiwanese makers of respectable computing equipment, competing strongly with the likes of Asus. Yet, the story does not end there. Like John Everyman and his plucky donkey, Asus has opted to enter the smartphone race.

Acer Liquid Jade Z review

 

This budget smartphone has the right specs, but even a low price can't hide its flaws...

Decent screen Low price

Brash, messy sound Poor design Erratic performance

Yes, it’s cheap. And for the money, you get a 5in 720p screen, which is not to be scoffed at. But that’s not enough to outweigh the Acer Liquid Jade Z’s many other flaws. It’s as frustrating as it is disappointing, especially when similar money could...

Acer Liquid Jade Z review

 

The Liquid Jade Z is a very fast budget phone, but its poor battery life and mediocre camera means it isn't as good value as the competition

Camera issues aside, though, the Liquid Jade Z is definitely one of the best Acer phones we've seen in recent years. Its snappy processor is just as fast as the Vodafone Smart Ultra 6 and its 5in screen looks just as good. However, when the Smart Ultra...

Acer Liquid Jade Z review

 

Why 4G, 720p, 5in for £150 doesn't always make sense

Slim and light ; Pretty good screen ; Great spec-to-cash ratio

Rubbish general performance ; Slow camera ; Suspect design flourishes ; Mediocre stamina

On paper the Jade Z is a fantastic bargain, but performance issues drag it down

Acer Liquid Jade Z hands-on review

 

£200 is the new £500, says Acer with its new Jade Android phone

The Acer Liquid Jade Z sits among a whole new movement in phones, ones that get you ‘HD’ screens and slightly higher-end design without charging all that much money for the privilege. That's a very good thing.
